Holyport and Ascot United both made it through to the FA Vase Second Round on Saturday as a number of Berkshire sides fell.

Joining them were Wallingford & Crowmarsh but there was disappointment for the likes of Berks County, Tadley Calleva, Eversley & California who all crashed out at the First Round stage.

Brendan Matthews got Ascot’s goal as the Yellamen won on the Isle of Wight, beating Newport 1-0 while it was the lottery of penalties that sealed Holyport’s passage in Kent after a 0-0 draw with Lydd Town. Sam Lock’s side went on to win 5-4 on spot-kicks.

Tadley weren’t so fortunate on penalties, losing 4-2 to Guildford City after Ben Wright’s second-half goal had given them a 1-0 lead, only for the Barlows Park visitors to level late on when it seemed a solitary goal would be enough.

An entertaining game for Wallingford though eho we’re behind at various points including 1-0 and 3-2 but fought back through two goals from Ty Hamilton as well as strikes from Lawrie Aitchison and Brad Walton to win 4-3.
